The Area 

Another gorgeous portion of the Sunshine face but past and up of the Paisano Chimney. Some of the stiffest face routes lie here, such as Caliente (5.12c) and Someone You're Not (5.13a). When standing in front of the Sunshine Face proper, this portion of stone is left, up and kinda around the corner, somewhat obscured from view.

Getting There 

Walk along the base of the Sunshine Face continuing past an big break in the face (Paisano Chimney).
